Double lacewood rocking chair #5: No internet make Paul do more work

07-15-2010 04:00 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 7 comments »

Ya that’s right the internet left my life since July 1st, I just got it back yesterday I have since finished the double rocker, of course taking pictures along the way. I will update this blog daily still posting about how much work I did each day. In this series I have now sculpted the seat joints about 90% done, the head rest is starting to take shape and let me tell you it’s a work of art! lol I ” fixed ” the arm where it attaches to the leg then glued it...

Daily Update #70: July 15, 2010

07-15-2010 03:42 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

What’s happening in the shop for July 15, 2010. Working on the finish for a twin built in murphy bed for a local designer. This is a twin size that has not a lot of room for error. It will be folding out of a closet door with just a fraction of an inch of clearence. If the back wall is slightly out the wrong direction I may have a problem. The finish will be the same color as the walls. I’ll have it mixed up in a lacquer because that is what is easier for me. I’ll be...

Ridgid TS3650 #4: Assembled It

07-15-2010 02:44 PM by Carreiro | 1 comment »

Well, it’s finally assembled. It didn’t take quite as long as six hours like some forums were claiming. Aligning the blade to the mitre slot was not difficult at all, especially with the use of callipers. Setting the blade perpendicular to the table was a cinch as well with my digital angle gauge from Mastercraft. The Accufence took a couple of days to get here, but it to was simple enough to put on and tune.I didn’t have too much to complain about during the assembly process. As long as you ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #42: Successful Changes

07-15-2010 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I woke up an hour early this morning from a dream. I am sorry to say that it wasn’t a lovely dream about woodworking or designing or anything so creative. It was one of those startling dreams that shook you a bit so that you couldn’t get back to sleep. I laid there for a while and I finally knew it was futile to try to get back to sleep and I gave up. Besides, just think of what I can do with this extra hour today. I’ll look at it as a gift and we will go from there. :) ...

Starting up a workshop the second time around. #8: Progress feels good.

07-15-2010 07:06 AM by David Kirtley | 0 comments »

This has been a good week for getting stuff done and working toward having a place to work. I made another bench. Well, not quite the same as my workbench but very similar. It is going to give me a place to put some stuff. I am deciding right now but it will probably hold my mortiser, my wet grinder, and my baby drill press. I am really playing musical chairs with my tools to make room for the latest addition. Not totally woodworking related but I picked up a little metal lathe to add to...

Computer Desk #1: Up to this point...

07-15-2010 06:10 AM by Scott G. | 3 comments »

It begins with a friend asking me if I could make him something after learning I had completed my apprenticeship. “Yep, I can make you something, what do you have in mind?” He told me he wanted a new computer desk, because the one he’s using is uncool. The guy I apprenticed with specialized in tables and bookshelves, so that seemed right up my alley. I was enthusiastic that I could make a little money doing what I had set out to do in the first place. It was looki...

Mikros Kosmos #10: And they say the outside doesn't count

07-15-2010 05:24 AM by tyskkvinna | 14 comments »

I was actually going to work on other things today, but I ended up having a really rough day and wanted something quiet to focus on. So I shifted gears and worked on the tiny house a little bit, though I opted to not work on the saw. (At least not until later—but that’s another story) After some heavy debate, I painted these pieces yellow. And these pieces red. I put a lot of debate into that, actually, and whether I should just paint the big pieces or do somethin...

Extremely Average #194: The Jig is Finished

07-15-2010 05:10 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, I finished the bandsaw small piece resaw and bread holder jig. Ok, I don’t actually intend to hold a loaf of bread for resawing, but I am pretty sure one could slice a baguette up in no time. I digress. I had an error to fix from yesterday and tonight’s blog is about my successful triumph and there is a picture of my first, rather thin, cut I made using it. I am very happy with the results. I also included a photo of how I set up the sho...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #4: Day 4

07-15-2010 04:17 AM by doorslammer | 2 comments »

Not a whole lot of visual activity today. It was mostly a day of sanding and a couple glue ups. Just one of those days where you put the iPod on and let your mind wander as you go through the monotony of hand sanding all the parts before the glue up. Except I forgot mine today so I just had to sit there and listen to the swish swish swish. Once sanded, I glued up both sides of the chair as sub-assemblies. While these were drying I finished shaping and sanding my front rail. I’m par...

The New Workbench Journey #1: The Journey Begins

07-15-2010 03:32 AM by DrJosh | 2 comments »

I have been woodworking now, off and on as a definite amateur, for about 4-5 years now. And in all that time, I have never really had a proper workbench. I purchased a “workbench” from a local store that I assembled and then found to be very wimpy and flimsy. I also purcahsed a set of brackets for a workbench kit from Home Depot that I built using 2×4’s and plywood. That bench is better, but it’s still not a proper woodworking bench. I have built a nice handful of...
